In a return to the old-fashioned days, the deities in Ephebe are now accepting animal sacrifices at their altars throughout the city, as well as donations and inanimate offerings.

The gods are fond of such displays, and tend to reward them generously.

As with donations and offerings, being a priest or follower of another deity will not penalise your attempts at pleasing other gods.

Zevgatis has opened a stall in Ephebe's Harbour Market to provide suitable sacrificial subjects.

With the renewed opening of the gates of Ephebe, traders in valuable goods have started regularly undertaking the journey between Ephebe and Ankh-Morpork. The trip, however, is hazardous, and due to the value of their caravan, these traders will usually require the help of a combat-competent escort.

Interested parties are encouraged to wander over to the Onion Gate in Ankh-Morpork, or Tyrant's Gate in Ephebe, and enquire for more details (a room help file is also provided).

The River Djel is now inhabited with a greater variety of life - from crocodiles to minnows.

You might also discover that hippopotami tend to spend the day in water, and go foraging in smaller numbers on dry land in the water pastures at night.
